Becoming a Mom

I'm delighted to announce that sometime around early September, there will be a new addition to the Hedgehog Knits family.


Nick and I are expecting a baby, a daughter actually. We're very excited first-time parents-to-be, and our families are just over the moon about it. This will be the first little girl on both sides of the family (with several little boy cousins already). Now, the real question is what to knit first?! To be fair, I have already knit and put away a Cardigan for Merry:



But, it's size 18 mo, and I made it before I found out the gender. Now that I know that I can knit girly things, I have a lot more patterns to choose from. By happy coincidence, a new LYS is opening up in my neighbourhood in the coming days (bringing the total in the city to 2), so I will be heading over there this weekend to pick up something fun, and possibly pink!

Congratulations! You have much to look forward to.
I am a long-time lurker who can't remember how she got here, but share many of the interests in your sidebar.
Have fun collecting girly patterns and buying lots of pink yarn!
